How it works
The system at a glance
Smart Factory provides both online and offline applications to enhance your manufacturing process. It supports your workforce in their day-to-day roles by providing real-time manufacturing intelligence and control, pinpointing opportunities to improve efficiency and boost profitability.
Smart Factory gathers location data through its best-in-class Real-Time Location System (RTLS), which includes hardware tags and sensors that connect via UWB radio signals to pinpoint the exact location and identity of assets in the manufacturing process. It combines this data with information from existing plant systems and devices to deliver a virtual interpretation of exactly what’s going on in the factory.
Smart Factory intelligence is instantly connected to the relevant people and tools – providing insights and control that drive real improvements to the bottom line.
Smart Factory Applications are a powerful combination of SmartSpace components, packaged to deliver unprecedented ways of virtualizing, monitoring and controlling complex assembly processes.
Enables manufacturers to completely virtualize the creation and management of identification points anywhere on the shop floor.
Gives manufacturers the ability to enable highly accurate, automatic product sensitive device control anywhere on the line.
An interactive web-based interface which delivers highly reliable real-time location and role-driven search capabilities, tailored around automotive production roles.
A monitoring and reporting tool kit which brings understanding to production processes so that they can be improved.
